Makeup may be the last step in preparing for the stage, but pageant makeup is just as key as picking out the gowns. It is vital for a pageant hopeful to know exactly what kind of makeup style will work to her advantage!


But unlike our normal day-to-day makeup, pageant makeup has more layers to offset stage lighting and flash photography. Creating a bold base that is designed for long-wear is absolutely critical, as well as setting your face with translucent powder to ensure your skin does not shine (the bad kind) on stage. Contouring is also important as it helps give the face a chiseled look under the bright stage lights. And of course, the choice of eyeshadow, blush and long-staying lip color need to be selected properly as it should go well with the outfit.
